Back to Basics

Each of us presented a solo piece in the first half of our recital. The second half featured the entire quartet playing pieces such as Georges Bizet’s Carmen Fantasy, Jean Rivier’s Grave et Presto and Jean-Baptiste Singelee’s Grand Quatuor Concertant. We also performed the World Premiere of new work by Singaporean composer, Jay Ong, entitled Enclosures. Here:

Melbourne Trip

Performance count: 3 in 3 days.

Started off with a performance at Up Your Alley Chamber Music Festival. It was a project presented by the Melbourne Philharmonia Project, spearheaded by the legendary Luke Carbon.

The next day, we teamed up with saxophonists from Melbourne, Joseph Lallo and Emily Clarke for a concert at Melba Hall, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. We performed Philippe Geiss’ Patchwork for saxophone quartet. (Photo Credit: Kevin Zhang)
